Cot­ton nom­i­na­tions now open

Central Queensland News - - RURAL WEEKLY -

NOM­I­NA­TIONS have opened for the 2018 Aus­tralian Cot­ton In­dus­try Awards, which recog­nise ex­cel­lence and high achieve­ment through­out the sup­ply chain.

Cot­ton Aus­tralia has called for nom­i­na­tions, which can be made on­line any time be­fore 5pm on March 30, 2018, at www.aus­tralian­cot­ton­awards. com.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Adam Kay said the awards ac­knowl­edged the hard work of ev­ery­one in the in­dus­try, from grow­ers and gin­ners to prod­uct sup­pli­ers, con­sul­tants, agron­o­mists, re­searchers and oth­ers.

“I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to nom­i­nate those around them who de­serve recog­ni­tion,” he said. “Im­por­tantly, we stress that the awards pro­gram is un­like lo­cal crop com­pe­ti­tions, it is sim­ply a way to recog­nise those who have made enor­mous ef­forts to bet­ter our in­dus­try.”

Awards re­cip­i­ents will be an­nounced at a gala din­ner on Thurs­day, Au­gust 9, to be held in con­junc­tion with the 2018 Aus­tralian Cot­ton Con­fer­ence.
